San Diego Comic Con Predictions: Movies

san diego comic con

This article outlines our predictions for movies that will be at San Diego Comic Con in one way or another.

Since 20th Century Fox has stated they will not be attending this year, we will be missing out on Assassin’s Creed, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Kingsman: The Golden Circle and War for the Planet of the Apes. I hope that people are less inclined to record material this year than in previous years so that we don’t keep losing out on the great opportunities that are available at San Diego Comic Con.

As for the rest of the films, we predict that based on the story of the film and the nature of the other panels we have seen at San Diego Comic Con, that the following films will be part of a panel:

  • Who Will Be There?: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Scott Eastwood, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Ben Affleck

    @Ashley Menzel You forgot to put Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on there.

    • Ashley

      Hi Sean! Thanks for the comment. I’m not 100% sold that it will be there for a few reasons:
      -The personal life stuff with Johnny Depp
      -Disney has so much success with D23, I don’t know if they’ll put it at SDCC

      Have you heard anything else about it? Thanks! 🙂
